A New Birth

For years I had a “Moses in the Cradle” plant that grew so abundantly, I gave pieces away every time I cut it back.

But then my mama plant died, leaving me without any for years. I never thought I’d see its blossoms again.

This year Patti gave me pieces of the original plant she grew.  I created two potted plants out of those pieces and recently gave one to a friend who has given me a variety of plants over the past few years, blessing me with a slew of different-colored blossoms.

I was pleasantly surprised today when she sent me this picture of a blossom I thought I’d never see again!

Though my original plant was gone, the pieces of its essence live on to create more blossoms.  A new birth happened from what I thought was long deceased!

Don’t be surprised if what you think is dead and gone rises from the dead like a phoenix.
